Frequency diversity for a phase-coherent frequency-hopping spread-spectrum system is proposed. The frequency band of the communicator is partitioned into L disjoint subbands on which L replicas of the communicator signal are simultaneously transmitted; each signal replica hops independently in its subband. Therefore, both phase continuity and coherent optimal combining of the received replicas are possible. Optimum diversity is thus at least 6 dB better than the conventional noncoherent FH-SS system. We show that a smart jammer should be present in all subbands. We also give a sufficient condition that forces the jammer to spread its interference signal on the whole communicator frequency band
